PALO ALTO, Calif. September 12, 2014 – Wowza® Media Systems, LLC, the provider of Simply Powerful Streaming™ software, today announced that Epiphan Systems, an innovator in professional audiovisual capture, recording and streaming hardware products, joined its Work With Wowza™ partner program. Together, Epiphan and Wowza provide end customers with a simple, reliable and secure live video streaming solution.

“We’re committed to delivering consistent and secure video streaming solutions to our customers to meet their unique needs, which is why we are excited to work with Wowza”

Used extensively in the fields of medicine, security, education, transportation, and in industrial and IT organizations, Epiphan provides video recording, medical imaging, webcasting and conference recording hardware. By partnering with Wowza, Epiphan leverages Wowza Streaming Engine™ to power reliable streaming for high-quality video and audio.

“We’re committed to delivering consistent and secure video streaming solutions to our customers to meet their unique needs, which is why we are excited to work with Wowza,” said David Kirk, VP of Product Marketing at Epiphan. “Through tighter integration, we can deliver an end-to-end solution and simplify live video streaming further expanding access to video streaming.”

Through this partnership customers can implement seamless video streaming to power innovative solutions. For example, a joint healthcare customer combines Epiphan’s VGADVI Broadcaster with Wowza streaming software to deliver live video to remote experts improving real-time support for hospital nurses and physicians. By using Epiphan’s hardware streaming device at the hospital and the Wowza streaming server at local sites, this customer can give remote medical experts visibility into what the hospital staff is doing without requiring VPN, remote access software or any changes to the hospital firewall. As soon as the Epiphan device is turned on and connected to the hospital network it automatically begins streaming video output to the Wowza server without any configuration or operation on the part of the hospital staff.

The Works With Wowza partner program further simplifies streaming by providing customers with tested, integrated, and supported end-to-end streaming components. Works With Wowza partners provide industry-leading technology needed for robust, flexible and scalable streaming to any device.

Epiphan and Wowza will demonstrate how their products integrate at Stand 3.B17 at the upcoming IBC trade show set to take place September 12-16 in Amsterdam.
